Cooler Weather and Vintage Sweaters

Now with school starting and the season starting to change, I am trying to adjust to the cooler weather. Fall is my favorite time of year. Fall colors, sweater weather, and esp Halloween!

 Some of the best sweaters that I own are ones that I have found in a vintage shop or on Etsy. 
I find it so satisfying finding great priced, unique pieces to add to my closet but if you are someone who is new to thrift or vintage shopping, it can be frustrating getting used to the differences in the sizing. 
Here are some tips I use when I am wanting to buy something online and am unable to try it on and am unsure about the fit and the sizing.

Velvet, Vintage & My Personal Favorite Vintage Touches

I dont know if it's due to spending more time at home or what but I have been going room to room rearranging furniture, pictures or trying to decided if I should re-paint the room or not. 
I know i've said it many times, my love for thrifting and vintage shopping not just for my closet but also for my home. I am always finding little gems that I need to find a place for in my home. Here are a few of my newest finds. 

These velvet club chairs I added last summer and I love the vibrant color paired with the brass trim. I am dying to find a spot for a velvet couch or other velvet chairs. Of course, vintage velvet furniture is my favorite and am always looking for that perfect peice.

Shop With Me

 There is nothing better than finding a great vintage piece for an amazing price, whether it's for your home or closet, it feels so good finding something unique, affordable and that reflects your personality. 

Last year I fell in love with the Marc Jacobs Floral Neck Tie Silk blouse and was fortunate to snag it when it was at an insane sale price, but last week I also found this blouse in a vintage shop for 22$! The colors and silk necktie are similar to the Marc Jacob blouse. So today I wanted to share some great vintage pieces that you might be interested in and hopefully, you'll be excited as I am with a great vintage score!

My Fancy Thrift Store Finds

Thrifting and vintage shopping has always been a passion of mine. I have filled my home and closet with unique items that, I feel, add so much more character to my home and matches my personality. 
Here are a few of my newest finds. 
When I saw these salt and pepper shakers in a local vintage shop, I grabbed them up immediately. I probably will only use them for special occasions, but I love how cute they look on display.

My Garden

 This year I wanted to update our garden by adding a fence, garden boxes, and a space for my flowers. I love planting flowers and plants and look forward to it every spring, but have been running out of places to plant everything I've been wanting to grow. So when we decided to give our garden an upgrade, I insisted on an area for a flower garden. It is still a work in progress but at least its a start. 

This year, spring seemed as if it would never come. I think it was cold, rainy, and windy till mid-May which kind of put all of our plants behind on blooming. Sadly, most of my hydrangeas haven't been doing very well this year. typical for 2020 right? 
Once things started to bloom and the weather warmed up, I was excited to get our garden started. 
I'm new to growing a garden so it's been a learning process for sure!
